Use an equipment list to plan your mobile pit.
« on: May 30, 2009, 05:37:08 PM »
As I started to draw the plans for my new mobile BBQ pit I felt that I was guessing on what I wanted in a mobile BBQ rig.  I never felt comfortable until I backed up and made an equipment list of everything that I might carry to a competition throughout the year and assigned a place for everything to go.  I now feel much more comfortable that I'm not forgetting anything in the design.  If you have never done a comp on a well stocked pit you should get some opinions from others on your personal equipment list.  After cooking with Craig and Crapshoot BBQ ( a very well stocked outfit) this is what I've decided on.
